Submission + - ThunderBird 1.5.0.8 fails to show, deletes, e-mail

An anonymous reader writes: ThunderBird, the open source e-mail application, contains a mail handling issue (BugZilla, please change your referrers) which is causing some e-mails to fail to display. The e-mails have been received, but as they are invisible they may as well not have been. In addition, the recommended practice of compacting folders will cause the invisible e-mails to actually be deleted permanently. The issue, which was discovered well over 2 weeks ago, has been patched for the 1.8.0 branch of ThunderBird — but there has been no word of an official new release or patch before the regularly scheduled December release of version 1.5.0.9.

Time to take stock. Go home with some office supplies.
